Has government shutdown happened before?

Yes, it has. One recent example is in 1995, when Republicans in the House of Representatives shut down the government for a total of 27 days. Led by Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, they objected to President Clinton's spending priorities, and when no agreement could be reached, the Republicans shut down the government. It turned out badly for them-- the public soon became outraged and a number of Republicans were not re-elected in the next congress.

Who or what is the head of the legislative branch?

There is no single person who is the head of the Legislative branch.In the USA, the Vice President presides over the Senate and the Speaker of the House presides over the House of Representatives. In actual practice it is usually the President pro tempore who presides over the Senate - who then frequently designates a junior senator to perform the function so as to give them experience in Senate rules and procedures. In cases where the Senate is conducting an impeachment trial of a President, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presides.In Britain, the House of Lords is led by the "Lord Speaker" - who is elected by the members of the House of Lords and is expected to politically neutral. The House of Commons is led by the Speaker of the House of Commons who, like the Lord Speaker, is expected to be impartial in administering the office and renounce his or her party affiliation. The Speaker must be nominated by at least 12 MP's - at least 3 of which are from a different party than the nominee and confirmed by a simple majority of the House of Commons.


Who is the leader for the House of Representatives?

in a state house, committee meetings are led by chair persons, selected by leadership (speaker, majority floor leader, whip, and caucus chair). Majority party chooses chairs for each committee. Floor action (debate, vote, bringing bills to a floor vote) is also done by leadership decisions though the majority floor leader acts as the director/conductor. I think its the same at Congress.
